Google Nexus 4 vs Apple iPhone 5
During the past years smartphones have actually invaded our lives. The competition between the producers is harsh, all trying to lure the public with new technologies, design and apps. The Google phone and the AT&T iPhone have both been extremely popular, and are fighting for control of music videos on the web.
Google Nexus 4 is the only smartphone available with Google's latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, while in the case of iPhone the only option you have is iOS 6-but users report battery problems in this case.
In what the storage capacity is concerned, neither of the two have removable memory slots for expansion, but iPhone has up to 64GB of storage while the Nexus 4 16GB. But, as long as you are within range of a Wi-Fi, clouds are accessible; for Apple we have iTunes and iCloud, and Google: Play Movies & TV, Books, Magazines, Music and more.
Neither of the two has a removable battery-even though the G1 Google phone with its removable battery came in extremely convenient for the users- so at this point we can only state that with normal use, both handsets would stretch to a couple of days.
Screen: both use IPS-type screens, specifically designed to offer great viewing angles, but Google Nexus 4 has a much higher screen area - 4.7 inches instead of 4.0., and the display has higher pixel count, which means less widescreen.
The Nexus 4 is very good for videos too, shooting at 1080p resolution and since Google owns YouTube, of course that uploading videos is extremely easy. On the other hand, Apple users are able to use iTunes (owned by Apple).
Through the Google Play store app, The Nexus 4 is a big beneficiary, with apps, music, e-books, digital magazines and films all of them available now, but Apple's iTunes Store is still in leadership position in some of those categories.
Both handsets seem exceptional, there's little difference in their sizing and they are built in very good quality. The iPhone 5 has a great advantage in the apps area, has a better screen (even if it is a bit smaller), faster web-browsing (but slower overall) performance, of course better storage capacities, support for 4G LTE connectivity as and when it becomes available in your area.
But the Nexus 4 is without a doubt faster, supports universal Micro-USB for charging and data transfer, and runs a more 'open' OS
